CHICAGO (AP) – Derrick Rose scored 26 points and Luol Deng added 20, including the tiebreaking 3, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Miami Heat 93-89 on Thursday night in a wild showdown between two of the Eastern Conference’s top teams.

In a game that could have playoff seeding implications, the Bulls used a big third quarter to turn a nine-point halftime lead into a 71-67 advantage, then watched a nine-point lead in the fourth evaporate into a four-point deficit before pulling it out.

Deng’s 3-pointer with 16 seconds left broke an 89-all tie and sent Chicago to its 16th win in 21 games.

Dwyane Wade scored 34 points and LeBron James added 29 for Miami, which lost for only the second time in 13 games.
